Ban disabled parking bays
My post on ‘Ban disabled parking bays’ …
If there is one thing that gets a disabled person’s blood boiling quicker than a roofer claiming disability living allowance/PIP – it’s disabled parking (or accessible parking).
It gets me hot and bothered – but I don’t go on about it every day like some disabled people. Life is too short….
That said, as it’s something I havn’t had a good moan about lately. As such, I’ve found myself motivated to do a blog by a comment I’ve just read, in response to an article in a local paper. The article was about a policewoman parking her police car in a blue badge parking space to pop into a shop for refreshments.
That wasn’t the thing that got to me (as bad as that is when other spaces were available).
It was the comment from a member of the public who claims an all too common misconception regarding what equality is – the same for everyone.
